The Outsider News

Rumor: casting call goes out for HBO Max's House of the Dragon When something you love ends, there's an inevitable feeling of emptiness that comes with it.

‘The Outsider’ Might Be Stephen King’s Modern TV Opus All the terror that chills our bones can easily be divided into two categories: the real and the unreal. Real terror is anything that could happen–the bad days or unlucky months in which grief or trauma or some other force of nature leaves us panicked and uneasy about the future.

The Last of the Mohicans TV series has finally found a home at HBO Max.

Nearly a year later, it turns out that the yet-to-launch streaming service HBO Max evidently likes the combination of talent involved, because they’ve given the new retelling a script order.
